I am not having this problem with FreeBSD 6.2, which I recently installed on a
laptop in place of kubuntu and I DID have this problem with the same laptop
when it was running kubuntu. I did not change any BIOS settings. The laptop
would wake me up with all the noise. With FreeBSD 6.2 the laptop stays quiet
if I leave it on overnight.
